About Our Auction

The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library will be hosting an on-line auction during Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude to help with budget shortfalls due to canceled events earlier this year.  “Home for the Holidays” consists of themed baskets that will be for sale through 32auctions.com/HOMEFOR21.  If you are looking for a gift for the holidays, stay-at-home nights, or a treat for yourself, sign on to the auction site (November 30 THROUGH December 12) and start bidding.  Twenty Eight baskets have been designed and donated by friends of the Library, which means that 100 percent of the sales will directly benefit Graves. We are especially grateful to Elizabeth and Richard Conrad for donating almost all of the handmade baskets, stoneware, and wood products made by artisans all over New England.  A few choices to consider:  Fireside Fun, Farm to Table, Holiday Dreams (for boys and girls), a Movie Premier Night, and many, many more.  Please feel free to call us at (207) 967-2778 for more details.
